2016 Dodge Dart vs. 2017 Hyundai Elantra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Dodge Dart than in the Hyundai Elantra, due to the Dodge Dart's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Dart and the Hyundai Elantra in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Dart as you will with the Hyundai Elantra, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Dodge Dart or the Hyundai Elantra, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Dart is much higher than that for the Hyundai Elantra.

Dimensions
The Dodge Dart is a little wider than the Hyundai Elantra, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Dodge Dart, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Elantra.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Dart transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Hyundai Elantra.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Dart has a much more powerful engine than the Hyundai Elantra. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Dart and the Hyundai Elantra.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Dart is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Elantra.
